India cricketers thrilled with Test match win over England

Indian cricket team players are elated after the team’s emphatic 157-run win over England in the fourth Test here at the Kennington Oval on Monday. This was also India’s first win at the Oval in 50 years.

Indian bowlers delivered big time on the last day of the fourth Test at the Oval on Monday as the genius of mercurial Jasprit Bumrah, and all-around performance by Shardul Thakur in the match helped visitors defeat England by 157 runs to gain a 2-1 in the five-match series. This is also India’s first win in Oval in 50 years. “What a comeback! The boys just kept bouncing back after every setback. What a way to stamp authority on the last day when England were 77/0. Way to go guys! Let’s make it 3-1. #ENGvIND” former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar tweeted.

“Great show ..The skill is the difference but the biggest difference is the absorbing power of pressure..indian cricket is far ahead then the rest @BCCI,” President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Saurav Ganguly tweeted

“If Lord’s was special, today’s win at The Oval is spectacular. #TeamIndia thrives on challenges and loves to overcome them. Congratulations to the entire group for an incredible performance. @Jaspritbumrah93’s journey to 100 Test wickets has been phenomenal #ENGvIND,” wrote Jay Shah, the Secretary of Board of Control for Cricket in India.

With the conditions good enough for batting, England openers got off to a decent start, with both scoring fifties. However, Shardul came into the attack and got rid of Burns in his first over of day 5.
Shardul Thakur, who was part of the Indian quartet in scoring more than 50 runs in the second innings, again dazzled as he sent back Joe Root to the pavilion. Hosts were still in the game until just after lunch on Day 5 when Jasprit Bumrah produced a glorious spell to give India a real shot at victory.

“This is a very special Test Match win. After being 127/7 on the first day, not many teams can make a comeback and win a away test the way Team India have done. That is why this is a very special Indian Team. Congratulations to everyone for playing their part in a memorable win,” wrote VVS Laxman.
